WHEREFORE WITH HEAVY HEARTS?

 

Wherefore with heavy hearts
We March onwards to man’s woeful end
We become a burden for Earth to carry
Every step swallows us into its volcanic bowels
But how can the spider be too heavy for her web?

Wherefore with heavy hearts
We bury the last of our slain brothers
The earth becomes a woven net
Every step slips us into its pores
The birds can no longer perch

Wherefore with a heavy heart
I wave from my unbroken tomb
I shall remember the hours of departure
I to die and you to live
Which is better? God, only knows
